A standout wine list pairs with Californian-Mediterranean fare at this bistro with a convivial vibe.- Google
"Must try: corn soup, gnocchi with peas, flat iron steak, onion bacon tart."
"We had an epic dinner at Heirloom Cafe last night."

One of the best meals I've had in SF. We started with two cheeses: both soft, creamy and surprisingly mild. Other appetizers were the burrata and scallops. For mains we split the gnocchi, hallibut, and burger (cooked with cheeses in the meats). All were equally stellar. We had the recommended red wine: a metallic Pinot Grigio. Sharp on the tongue with a light finish. Perfect complement to the rich food. Service was fine. Ambiance was louder than expected but we were a group of three and they seated us at the end of a communal table and it worked perfectly. Conversation was intimate and we could drown out the rest of the noise. Update after second meal here: just as god as before, but I was note conscious of how small the portions were this time.

Too LOUD! Advise the owner to add even more sound insulation padding throughout the rest of the ceiling and side walls (some pads on, but not covering all of the ceiling). Hard to talk to anyone, left with a huge headache. This is the loudest restaurant I recall ever eating in (noise level beyond many crowded bars). Sad, as without this major issue, HC would be a great place to return to as the food and service were good. Please address the noise problem.

Had a nice dinner here with a few friends. The chicken was delicious and they even made it dairy-free for me. The burger special also looked great. Super quiet, quaint restaurant - nice staff. A bit expensive.

Heirloom is perfect for an intimate dinner with friends or a date. The restaurant is spacious and comfortable, but the lighting is mostly candlelit and dim. The salmon was perfectly textured and was probably the best I've had in SF. The side of broccoli was nothing like I've had before, you have to try it. Service was A+. PS. Thanks Flo for assisting with this first Plus review. Raph should be proud.

Short version: it's good, it's expensive. It might not be entirely fair to call it out as expensive, since what really made it more expensive than other similar places is that we got a lot more wine than we usually do. But the restaurant is especially known for its wine, and they offer excellent pairings, so if you're not going to get the wine, why go? Great food, great friendly, attentive, but unobtrusive service, nice semi-fancy, semi-rustic atmosphere. And the wine was great. It's always eye-opening for me to have wine well paired with food. I ordered a 2005 Rioja when we sat down, and we thought it was OK. Later in the meal, the same wine came paired with my husband's entree (braised pork, polenta, maple-glazed delicata squash, orange-pecan gremolata) and it was 10 times better. And with dessert we had a 2011 Jurançon Uroulat that was fantastic. If we were in the mood to have someone hand-hold us through some excellent wines that can't be easily had other places. But otherwise, for the money, we'd go to Blue Plate or Serpentine.

The food is really amazing, seasonal and healthy. The downside is that the location feels a little distant. It feels like a place that belongs in Noe Valley more so than the Mission. While the food is great, it's a little on the pricey side.
